I haven’t read an autobiography from such an inspiring female in a while. This was a very refreshing change! Being a fellow Northern lass, this feisty girl from Yorkshire tells of her career from her school day beginnings at Oldham Theatre Workshop, to London’s West End (via Paris and the Moulin Rouge) to her ultimate goal of becoming a female racing driver and stuntwoman.
This is a story of a lady who loves life. She shows that the impossible can be made possible with the right attitude no matter who you are or where you come from. Sarah lives life on the edge and enjoys every extreme moment of it. She believes in living out her dreams and living life to the full bringing colour and laughter to the lives of everyone around her.
Even after a high-speed powerboat crash putting her on a life-support machine, Sarah didn’t let dying for four minutes or a face held together by titanium plates dampen her spirits. The crash was documented as one of the worst crashes seen in powerboat racings history yet Sarah returned back to racing with BBC’s ‘999’ and ‘Ripley’s Believe It or Not’ hiring her as the stuntwoman to re-enact her own near fatal experience. Soon after she became the European powerboat champion. Her journey of triumph over adversity is both inspiring and extreme.
If you are looking for the next inspiring read, then dive on in.
